Irrepressible pop stars Jedward have been wearing Toy Story fancy dress to take part in a Guinness World Record.

The brothers - real names John and Edward Grimes - headed to Manchester to help beat the current record for the world's largest pass the parcel game.

Although they wore the film fancy dress of Buzz Lightyear from the neck down, the twins didn't put on the toy astronaut's helmet because they didn't want to mess up their quiffs.

The parcel arrived from Liverpool and the people of Manchester were invited to tear off a few layers and keep the prizes as part of a ten-day event.

It resulted in the record being smashed and Britain being named as pass the parcel capital of the world.

Jedward seem to be everywhere at the moment - they also recently got into costume to film a couple of new adverts for the Nintendo DS Christmas campaign.
